I would like to be able to delete my post that is in error.

AFAIK deletions can only be done in the Tech Support forum if and only if no one has added any replies after your post. I dont think any other forum allows deletions.

This is best dealt with by a moderator.

yep. PM to a moderator and it'll be taken care of. Sometimes editing your message and saying: "delete this, it's a mistake" helps too. If I come across those I kick them out as well.

Since this thread is in the "Requests" I would agree that it would be a nice feature to be added :wink:

When you can't delete the whole message I guess you can completely wipe the text within it using edit; if you need to get out of trouble fast :-)

(should have done that myself once or twice)

Youre 99.999% correct, but lets just clarify :P

You can totally erase your original text by using "Edit" but you cannot leave a blank/empty post, you need to replace your original text with something like "Please ignore" or "Just another brainfart". You cannot leave it blank.
